Real Bride Vanessa & Roy

Today is our fourth anniversary, and in celebration we thought we would share the beautiful wedding of one of our stylish couples from this past 2014 wedding season, as there is really no better way than to put our work- which we are so proud of on display! It's hard to believe that we can now say that we have made hundreds of brides dreams come true in our boutique over the years, time has surely flown by!
We have had the pleasure of witnessing so much joy, laughter and excitement as each one of our beloved customers finds a dress that is perfect for their special day. The fact that we at The White Dress provide the setting, the experience and the gown that will be remembered and cherished for a lifetime is truly an honour. We hope to make many more brides 'white dress dreams' come true in the years to come, and we thank everyone who has loved and supported our business since it opened in 2010.
So without further adieu here is the beautiful wedding of Vanessa & Roy which took place in Montreal this August. Vanessa wore a stunning customized Monique Lhuillier gown which was perfected by our alterations team at Couture Woven Streams meticulously! She absolutely glowed in her gown each time she visited the boutique for fittings and her wedding day was no different. We like to think all of the other gorgeous details of their wedding were planned around the dress (but we would think that, as we are a little dress obsessed around here!)
Vanessa was kind enough to send over a little blurb about her experience at our store:
"My mother and I had long dreamed of the day when we would buy my wedding dress. At The White Dress both of our dreams came true! We found the most beautiful dress in the most idyllic setting - a local shop in the heart of Ottawa's little Italy. The store owner guided my mother and I in making this defining decision - she was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. My Monique Lhuillier dress was unforgettable and undoubtedly one of the highlights of our wedding celebration. Thank you The White Dress. "
